She said I was doing really well, and I didn’t believe her.
She said I was a natural, and I didn’t believe her.
She said she wanted me there, and I didn’t believe her.
They said I made mistakes, and I believed them.
They whispered behind my back, and I believed them
They judged and pointed fingers, and I believed them.
She said I was fantastic.
They said I was no good.
Why did I believe them?
Why do we believe what we believe?
What forms us and shapes us?
A lifetime of rejection
A world full of lies
Leading to the inevitable conclusion
She didn’t mean it
They meant every word
